Eye Level Learning, formerly known as E.nopi, offers supplementary educational programs from Daekyo. The name "Eye Level Learning" is used internationally whilst in South Korea, where Daekyo is headquartered, it is named "Noonnoppi" (Hangul눈높이) meaning "eye level".

Established in 1976, Daekyo provides a systematic learning method developed by Dr. Young Joong Kang. Eye Level helps children master every learning concept through individualized coaching with a small step approach based on each child’s ability, which is the core of the Eye Level education philosophy. Eye Level nurtures self-confident, self-motivated and creative problem solvers who master arithmetic operations and critical thinking. The program consists of Eye Level Math, which includes Basic and Critical Thinking Math, Eye Level English which includes four main concepts (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) and Eye Level Korean. For almost 40 years, Eye Level has provided a unique system of learning with a philosophy of placing its students first, whilst allowing its franchisees to maintain effective and efficient business models.

Eye Level is one of the foremost global leaders in supplemental education.[citation needed] As a result, Eye Level has significantly grown in the numbers of centers and student enrollment throughout North America and Asia. More than 2.5 million children in 25 countries have benefited from the Eye Level program. Eye Level Learning centers are located around the world.[1]

Mathematics[edit]

In Basic Thinking Math, students focus on the arithmetic part of mathematics (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). In Critical Thinking Math, students focus on patterns and relationships, geometry, problem solving, measurement and reasoning. Students are assigned to their levels based on test results, not by their grade levels (hence the "eye level" name).
